About Us

The mission of citycarbon and its affiliated city networks (Xcarbon.org) is to provide a platform for communities and scholars to actively engage in accounting and curbing of carbon emissions.

The web sites are non-commercial, non-profit, and transparent venues to estimate the carbon and/or ecological footprint, provide helpful tools and advice to curb emissions, and keep the citizenry informed about news, views, and events of sustainable living. It is envisioned that community and University based work to expand this grassroots effort will help create a more sustainable future.
